Title Sequence idea
Our title sequence idea is to create a yearbook which is opened by all the conventional characters that are seen in teen comedy dramas, for example 'the jock', 'the elite', 'the freak' and 'the nerds'. The title sequence will show all of these characters opening the yearbook and showing the audience their school photos whilst also showing pages such as prom day and graduation day. When creating the title sequence we need to make sure that it is very conventional, this is so it looks as realistic as possible, without the right costume and props the title sequence will not be as effective. When creating the sequence it is crucial for us to add in bright bold colours throughout the yearbook so the audience are aware that it is a high school film.

During the last couple of days of being able to edit and film for our title sequence I was unfortunately unable to make it into school therefore the role of editing was passed on to both Jazmine and Bronte. Throughout the past couple of days they had given the class a second viewing of our title sequence, during the feedback we was again given some more constructive criticism to help make the sequence as best as it could be. One of the tips the class had exchanged with us was changing some of the typography as the believed it did not suit our consistent style of a high school comedy that is shown throughout. Fellow pupils had also brought to our attention about the yearbook pictures which would slightly move on the page, this was something that we all knew was a problem however we was finding it hard to think of a way that would allow this not to happen. Thankfully within the last week Bronte and Jazmine took over the role of editing and during this they was able to overcome the moving image problem, they had also applied some other affects which allowed the sequence to look a lot more efficient, one of the effects included was a flash, this was used to make the yearbook photos look like they was being taken by a camera. Once this flash was added it made the photos look like they came to life and had allowed the sequence to become more superior.Another effect they had to add in was using the sticker tool on the font, as the same problem of the font moving across the screen had occurred, however once adding these effects the problem was solved and once they had sent through the final cut to me for approval we was finally finished with our Welling High title sequence.
